Top 10 Low Price Stocks To Invest In Right Now

No doubt, a strong portfolio typically includes stocks with robust fundamentals and solid track records. In a bull market, these investments provide healthy returns and protect against capital erosion. However, we should not overlook the benefits of owning penny stocks, either. The get-rich-quick angle with these picks is a real possibility. That’s why they continue to garner investor interest.

That said, penny stocks can also be a double-edged sword. Naturally, everyone is attracted to the low price tag. But it’s extremely important to understand which stocks are trading at a bargain and which ones are trading cheaply. The former can have real potential to super-charge your portfolio.

With the retail-trading frenzy we’ve seen this year, it seems like it doesn’t take much to move the needle for these low-priced picks. This is due in part to highly active social media forums who closely follow the sector, such as Reddit’s r/WallStreetBets. Ultimately, though, everyone is looking for massive profits from their investments.

    Although many stocks haven’t rallied in response to positive earnings numbers yet, one exception was American Express Company (NYSE: AXP) last week.

General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) also got a boost Friday when the company left guidance unchanged instead of lowering it, as some analysts had feared. Honeywell international Inc. (NYSE: HON) raised guidance and found some traction in the market Friday, too. As we noted earlier this month, many investors appear more interested in the future than in what companies accomplished last quarter, so positive guidance from any company might receive a hearty reception.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Own For 2018

Business leaders are reiterating their support for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and asking Congress to step in after the Trump Administration formally said it is ending the Obama-era program.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday that DACA, which protects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, “is being rescinded.” The Department of Homeland Security will stop processing new applications today.

The administration signaled its plan to end the program last week, and business leaders banded together to ask President Trump and Congress to reconsider. Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple (AAPL, Tech30) CEO Tim Cook and Snapchat (SNAP) CEO Evan Spiegel as well as hundreds of other executives signed a letter calling on the president to preserve the program.

The DHS said that it will continue to renew permits that expire in the next six months, giving Congress some time to figure out how to continue to protect current DACA recipients.

But due to other concerns, we feel the stock is still not a good buy right now.
